    Caramelized onions are a great addition! If you're making this for a vegetarian or adapting it for a vegan, keep in mind that worcestershire sauce is NOT vegetarian. Either omit it or buy the veg. kind.

    Yummy I am a huge fan of tempeh and still make it all the time even though I'm no longer vegan...will definitely throw one of these babies together next time I have some hanging around. Never thought to add capers to my Russian/1k Island Dressing before. Thanks for the great idea :)

    This is fantastic, love everything about it! Great seasonings in this and nice pictures, too!
    Did you know there isn't actually a Russian dressing like this in Russia? I'm sure same is with French and Italian ones. I do love the dressing though, it goes great with Rueben!

    Thanks Michael for sending me this wonderful recipe. I also flagged it as beautiful cause it made my mouth water just looking at the enlarged picture. I'll have to check into two of your ingredients I'm not familiar with, Tempeh & Brag Amino acid. Where's the best type of store to find them? This is most certainly 5 forks treat.
